Anyone tried "jerry riggin" a camera to work inside you're helmet? I've came across a camera that is 1"X1"x2/3" that uses RCA plugs to plug into a camcorder and runs off a 9V battery. I'm thinking about trying this next year and was wanting to know if anyone else has done it..................or am i on to something?

We had an in car camera that we would clamp to one of the bars on the cage, pretty cool to watch, but its hard to see if any clay hits the screen. Then we faced it to the rear of the car, nice view, no clay hitting the screen, and you can see who is hitting you. lol

I was planning on mounting my video camera, but being a dirt track and all, i dont think i could find tear-off's small enough to put on the lense or plexiglass shield.

And yeah the shipping charges are a little steep but the item is coming from singapore. I've done extensive searching on internet for a camera that small, about everything i found was $200+, even found a pair of sunglasses with a camera in them but they was like $800 or so. I think i'll probably spend the money and give it a try, he!! i've spent more money than that in the bar's on friday nite and all i got out of that was a hangover, LOL.

Yeah the possibilites are endless. A guy could make a fortune going from track to track selling and renting outfits like this.
